Agricultural and veterinary chemicals are important inputs to Victorian agricultural sectors, enabling production of sustainable, high-quality produce and livestock for a growing marketplace.
While providing many benefits, chemicals must be used responsibly to manage weeds, pests and disease and minimise adverse effects associated with their use.
The department regulates the use of agricultural and veterinary chemicals, as well as the manufacture and use of fertilisers and stock foods to improve their use in Victoria, protect and enhance market access and consumer confidence and minimise risks to human health, the environment and animal welfare and trade.
